McGinn University

I have a solution to the problems of higher education (sic) in America: I am founding my own university–McGinn University (MU). It will of course have a vibrant philosophy department teaching all branches of the subject. We will also cover psychology and brain science, as well as literature, biology, and the more interesting parts of mathematics and physics. There will be a special emphasis on creativity (creative writing is compulsory) and advanced writing skills. In addition we will have an athletics program: tennis, table tennis, gymnastics, trampoline, squash, badminton, swimming, kayaking, surfing, windsurfing, paddle boarding, and skim boarding (oh it will be fun!). Also a music department covering all aspects of music, from music theory to how to hit a drum, from old to new (basic guitar and percussion skills desirable). Fees very reasonable (unlike that monstrosity Trump University). The aim is to turn out first-class minds and free spirits.

    Academic psychology turned interesting? Interesting. Interested.

    One could fill a course with interesting stuff about why a lot of academic psychology is terminally dull.
    And piano counts as percussive.
    I’d gladly audition for a place!

    Hello !

    Which parts of mathematics do you find interesting ? I am sure you would include Mathematical Logic, Set Theory, Computational Complexity and all Analysis.
